LONDON (ICIS)--South Africa’s Sasol Acrylates began a planned turnaround on its crude acrylic acid (CAA) unit last week, and normal operations are expected to resume early next week, a source from the company said on Wednesday.
“We brought it down a little earlier [than planned], last week Wednesday,” the source said. “Everything is fine, and we should be back by the beginning of next week.”
Sasol Acrylates is based in Sasolburg in the Free State province, South Africa, and has the capacity to produce 80,000 tonnes/year of CAA from the facility.
Acrylic acid and acrylate esters are propylene derivatives.
